OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL: Laurentiu Branescu loaned to Juve Stabia

Valerio Pennicino

For the past two seasons, Laurentiu Branescu has been the No. 1 for the Juventus primavera squad, one that has had its fair share of success since he arrived. And on a handful of occasions during the 2012-13 season, Branescu was included in the match-day squad for the Italian champions, although obviously never seeing any kind of action with the likes of Gigi Buffon and Marco Storari firmly entrenched as the top two goalkeepers at the club.

Now, Branescu won't have to worry about bouncing between the senior squad and the primavera. No, no. He's now going to get the chance to show what he can do with the (somewhat) big boys, having been loaned out by Juventus to Serie B side Juve Stabia for the 2013-14 campaign on Wednesday.

From Juventus' official website:

Juventus Primavera goalkeeper Laurentiu Branescu will spend the 2013/14 campaign with Juve Stabia after agreeing terms on a one-year loan deal.

The agreement also includes the option to extend the 19-year-old's stay with the Serie B outfit at the end of the season.

Short and sweet. No messing around. Hey, whatever works.

There were a few thoughts at the end of the season that Branescu could be set for a promotion to Juventus' senior squad after rumors surfaced that Storari could be ask for a move away from Turin this summer as he looked to finish his career as a regular starter rather than Buffon's understudy. However, said rumors dissipated quickly, and the 19-year-old Romanian keeper was sent out on loan as a result. And now with his loan move official, Branescu will have the chance to show why he was so highly thought of when he first arrived to Juve's primavera squad a few years ago.
